I did not know about this part of Mormon history. The volunteers in the museum were very helpful and answered our questions. We spent about 40 minutes looking through the museum and cabins. Very nice restrooms.

We went in for a quick look and found the volunteers so friendly that after we walked around we stayed and watched the movie on the history of how the settlers arrived there.

Our family spent almost 2 hrs here on a Sunday, visitor center was closed but grounds/museum was open; super kid friendly & interactive; nice movie with some Mormon evangelism undertones, but overall great place to check out and learn about the area!

We initially stopped here because we were told they had some good maps for local hikes. It turned out to be true. While there we were given a quick lesson in some heritage of the local area. We quickly toured the restored and new cabins...More

It was so interesting and the volunteers friendly and helpful. The attraction is free and the foundation relies on donations.
